BFFs Busy Philipps and Michelle Williams are looking back at the moment that their friendship blossomed.
The pair, who met on the set of “Dawson’s Creek” when Philipps joined the cast for season five, reminisced about their days on the hit teen drama on Thursday night’s episode of “Busy Tonight”.
“I met you the first night I was there. I had been prepped that we were going to love each other, so it felt very high stakes, and we ended up immediately loving each other,” Philipps explained before Williams revealed they went through a harrowing experience that actually brought them closer.
The “Freaks And Geeks” alum added, “You had a jet ski and [our ‘Dawson’s Creek’ costar] Kerr Smith had a jet ski. And I’m just going to apologize in advance if Kerr sees this, because we’ve never come clean about this, ever!”
“We had this really clumsy move. There was this boat coming our way, but nowhere near us! And to get out of the boat’s way, we decided to drive directly into each other,” Williams added before Philipps further elaborated: “We had a jet ski crash and Michelle gashed open her leg and I gashed open my hand. It was also the summer of the shark, where everyone was getting attacked by sharks. So, all I could think was ‘get back on the jet skis, we’re going to die, the sharks are coming.’”
And the next day, things got worse, “Kerr came to work and he said his jet ski sank. And he was like, ‘Did something happen to my jet ski?’ And Michelle was like, ‘Nope, we don’t know!’”
“Dawson’s Creek” aired from 1998 until 2003.
